Famous quotes containing the word myriad:

    The true critic is he who bears within himself the dreams and ideas and feelings of myriad generations, and to whom no form of thought is alien, no emotional impulse obscure.
    Oscar Wilde (1854–1900)

    And before, with banner red,
    Through the blizzard snow unseen,
    All unharmed by hail of lead,
    With a step like snow so light,
    Showered in myriad pearls of snow.
    Crowned in wreath of roses white,
    Christ leads onward as they go.
    Alexander Blok (1880–1921)
